The city was originally founded in 1794 after the Battle of Fallen Timbers, but was quickly abandoned during the War of 1812. Several attempts to resettle the land failed miserably until 1832, when the settlement joined up with a neighbor to create the new town of Toledo. It quickly grew as people began to see the benefits of living in the small lakeside town, and by the time of the Second World War Toledo had grown into a manufacturing powerhouse. Many companies left, however, but the Dana Corporation is still thriving in the city, and its numerous factories (it is a producer of automotive parts) employ over 35,000 people.

Toledo\’s climate is moderated by the Great Lakes, and as such has what is called a lake-moderated continental climate.
